Midlothian Council leader George Purcell (Lab) has entered the race for the senior vice-presidency of the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities.

He is challenging Fife Council leader Christine May (Lab) for the position following previous senior vice-president Pat Watters' election as president.

The senior vice-president will come from the ruling Labour group and will be instrumental in rebuilding the beleaguered organisation.

The convention sent letters to all 32 Scottish councils this week to find a replacement for Mr Watters.

Mr Purcell said: 'Any council is able to nominate a vice-president and I have put my name forward.'
